Dai1992 L. C. Dai, K. West, R. Littaua, K. Takahashi, and F. A. Ennis. Mutation of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 at Amino Acid 585 on gp41 Results in Loss of Killing by CD8+ A24-Restricted Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes. J. Virol., 66:3151-3154, 1992. An A24-restricted CD8+ CTL gp41 epitope was localized: YLKDQQLL, using a CTL clone from an HIV infected individual. Lys to (Arg or Gln) substitution in peptides used to pulse a target cell line eliminated killing. PubMed ID: 1373204. Show all entries for this paper.
